i just found that that the cpu cooling fan came with this ZALMAN ZM-STG2 Thermal Greases
is that a problem?

Your link on the first page is broken but it looks like you are trying to link to Arctic Clean. It's a two bottle product and is fine for cleaning off old thermal paste.

No one has said this and while I can't imagine you'd think of doing it any other way - only clean the paste off the top of the cpu (that flat part - NOT the part with the pins) and the base of the heat sink. DO NOT try and clean the thermal paste off the bottom of the cpu (the part with the pins) or the socket on the motherboard itself. You shouldn't have any there in the first place.

As mentioned previously, in your case I would recommend leaving well enough alone if things are working and your temps are good.



EDIT:

Also, if you do decide to remove the heatsink/cpu/etc... Do not do so until everything has cooled down.
